10 August 2022

MINNEAPOLIS — A stranger has stepped up to help the owner of a Minneapolis business that was severely damaged by a vandal.

Daniel Hernandez has to pay thousands of dollars to repair the windows of his grocery store in the Eat Street neighborhood.

Cameras caught a young man smashing the windows Friday night after he was kicked out for shoplifting.

A woman named Suzie Donahue saw our WCCO story and felt compelled to help — and pitched in $1,000. Our cameras were there for the moving moment.

“I was very touched by your story. It hit something really deep and I want to give you $1,000 for repair for your window,” Donahue said to Hernandez. 



“Thank you so much. It’s going to help a lot,” Hernandez said. 

Hernandez says he no longer has to decide between repairing the window or laying off one of his employees.  

Police haven’t announced any arrests.
